well I have a slight settings-fobia. A setting is not always the best 
solution, as it makes testing and maintaining more difficult.

If there is a problem with the implementation, then I think time is better 
spent trying to figure out what takes time, rather than spenting the time in 
the future fixing a bug which comes from this setting.

Optimizing the code could be done through lazy evaluation e.g. where a file is 
not stat'ed before the info is really needed.

Just a though, no action items on anyone behalf :-)
